EXAMPLES PLAYING TIPS
EXAMPLE 12 This descending equivalent of example 11 starts with the fretting hand in shape #5. In bar 46, the picking-hand tap bend (16th fret) is supported with a bend on the 12th fret of the same string with the fretting hand. The vibrato on that bend also comes from the fretting-hand bend at the 12th fret.
EXAMPLE 13 We finish off with another four-notes-per-string example; this time, featuring string skips and executed using a combination of fretting- and picking-hand tapping. This example spans three CAGED shapes (#4, #5 and #1). rhythmically, it’s septuplets throughout (seven notes per beat). If you target the note at the start of each beat and focus on getting all the notes in between as evenly-spaced as possible, the internal rhythms should look after themselves.
